At Maui Discount Jeep Rentals, all our Jeeps are perfectly suited for the journey, providing you with the ideal combination of comfort, capability, and fun.

Preparing for the Journey

The Road to Hana is renowned for its breathtaking scenery, winding roads, and numerous stops along the way. Here’s how you can make the most out of your trip:

  1. Start Early: The earlier you start, the more time you’ll have to explore the numerous waterfalls, hiking trails, and scenic overlooks along the way.
  2. Pack Essentials: Bring along water, snacks, a camera, and comfortable clothing. Don’t forget your swimsuit for those impromptu waterfall swims!
  3. Plan Your Stops: While spontaneity is part of the adventure, having a rough idea of the must-see stops can help ensure you don’t miss out on key attractions like Twin Falls, the Garden of Eden Arboretum, and the Seven Sacred Pools at Ohe’o.

Driving Tips for the Road to Hana

  • Take Your Time: The Road to Hana is about the journey, not just the destination. Plan to spend the whole day on this drive to fully appreciate the beauty of Maui’s east coast.
